Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – Turks and Caicos Islands own international designer and photographer, Kazz Forbes of Saint George Fashion House (SGFH), has once again been instrumental in empowering, educating and inspiring the youths of the TCI.
Forbes, who recently facilitated an eight-week after school fashion club program at the Edward C. Gartland Youth Center, spoke to nearly three hundred third grade students of the Clement Howell High School on the topics of 'What is Fashion Design?' and 'Fashion Careers'.
Under the theme: “Dream. Explore. Discover: Your Path to the Future”, the school’s Career Day sensitizes the various career opportunities existing in the Turks and Caicos Islands and the wider Caribbean. The objective of this annual exercise is to assist students in making informed and important career choices. In an effort to achieve these goals, personnel from various sectors are invited to make presentations about career opportunities in their field.
Mr. Forbes says, “It was indeed an honor and a privilege to speak to the students, providing knowledge on what is fashion and careers in fashion and encouraging them to set goals and to follow their dreams, at such an early and important time of their lives”.
“It took about six minutes to get the students settled as they were screaming and cheering me on as I made my way to the podium to speak. That spirit displayed immediately motivated me to continue following my dreams and is indeed a signal of excitement and eagerness within that body of students to endeavor to be a success”.
